I always have wondered what the meaning of life is. Why are we thrown into a world filled with so much joy, yet so much suffering and pain? What is the meaning behind all this, and why are we the ones to experience it? I’ve stayed up many nights questioning this, as I’m sure most of us have.
Life is mysterious, filled with unknowns. I hold onto my spirituality to connect to my higher power. It helps reassure me that there is a reason behind the life that I’m currently living. The energies of the earth are one with my entire being.
I don’t want to go through all these trials and tribulations and have nothing at the end. I want to know that I have something to look forward to when I pass on to the other side, that all the love I have spread to others will last for years to come, and that my deceased loved ones will meet me when the end of my life comes. If you look deep inside yourself then you will know deep in your heart that there is a reason. We just don’t know why.

In retrospective, we will probably never get the answers we are looking for about life’s meaning. Maybe a part of all this isn’t knowing until the very end. One thing is for sure; Life is a beautiful gift.
